Dr. Padmanabhan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Padmanabhan "I was born in India but came to America when i was 5 years old. I grew up in Wichita, Kansas. I did my undergrad/medical school at UMKC in Kansas City. My surgical residency was at University of Kansas. After my residency i went to serve in the United States Air Force. I served as a Surgeon in the Air Force from 2000 - 2004. I was stationed at Scott Air Force Base and also was deployed for a few months to Incirlik Air Force Base in Turkey. I am proud of my military service and support the military active duty and retirees proudly! I came to practice in Arlington in 2005 February. I have practiced General and Laparoscopic surgery here for 12 years and have been in practice altogether for 17 years. I love living in Texas and am a huge sports fan and die hard supporter of the Cowboys! I'm excited for the new era with Dak and Zeke - you can always talk some cowboy football with me! "
